Comcast Says Its Streaming TV Service Won't Count Against Data Caps Because It Doesn't Use the Internet - by Dante D'Orazio/ Home/ Tech/ Comcast/ The Verge/ theverge.com

"Stream TV won't use up your bandwidth, either.

Comcast internet subscribers shopping around for streaming video services are going to have a pretty convincing reason to opt for the company's own product, called Stream TV. That's because data used for the service won't count against subscribers' data caps, which start at 300GB per month. In addition, bandwidth used by the service won't impact your network speeds — Comcast will route Stream TV data over bandwidth you aren't paying for, so your internet speeds won't drop while you're watching TV. Needless to say, competing services like Netflix, PlayStation Vue, and Sling TV enjoy no such advantages..."

And the need for net neutrality grows ever greater.

And perhaps...competition in the market. Cable operators, in general, are having a field day with internet services and it's only going to get worse unless there is oversight. This is one area we know based on history that left alone consumers will certainly get screwed.
